Valerie Bio Picture

Name: Valerie
Copy-pasta from wiki:
In Norse mythology, a valkyrie (from Old Norse valkyrja "chooser of the slain") is one of a host of female figures who decide who dies and wins in battle. Selecting among half of those who die in battle, the valkyries bring their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin.

VERY VERY LOOSELY based off this concept. It's going to be a mis-mash of a comic including all sorts of non-historical fun.

Age - Ancient by human standards, roughly the tail end of a 17yr/o (almost 18) equivalent in valkyrie terms

Height - 5ft 10 inches. Short for a valkyrie.

Skin color - pale/greyish purple

Eye - feral/golden. No pupils and they are somewhat luminescent at night.

Hair - naturally blond, dyes it blue but keeps a streak of her natural color for flavor. Blue is her "flock's" color. (flocks are a group of valkyries in a work environment. in her case, it's her class' color. The group she joins for a choosing has red as their color and she envies/idolizes a flock that have orange as their color).

General appearance:
Not much for fashion, she likes clothes that "breath". Has the look of being a bit underfed (due to her picky eating habits), her ribs show but she doesn't have any abs (she's lived a very cushy life). No muscles to speak of. Is covered in a fine layer of feathers, only really noticeable on her lower arms and legs. Has wings of a generic sort. Hair is always very wind-swept/all over the place. You try keeping a "do" with all the wing flapping and high altitudes.

Weapon of choice
Shield and fists. Has practiced with a hammer, but isn't proficient. Knows all about spears, knives and swords but knowledge =/= actually able to use them beyond theatrical displays.

Strengths
Very strong and resilient. Can't be poisoned. Quick, agile. Very book smart. Excellent with defensive combat. Wings give her very high jumps and mobility: makes her movements faster in one direction, changing direction can be problematic at times.

Weaknesses
Horrible with sharp pointy things and combat in general (loves the stuff, but as a very young valkyrie [by their standards] never had any practical application), can only fly a few meters above the ground (Tree height, can't fly long distances anymore). Very sheltered/naive. Picky eater. Currently mortal.

Basic story related stuff:
Valkyrie in training. She's "graduated" from the valkyrie equivalent of high school and would be in a prolonged break before taking up an apprenticeship. The break is cut short when they run out of choosers for a big battle going down. Goes to her first "choosing" and gets turned into a mortal. Her valkyrie girls back her up and transport her to the Station so she can regain her immortality.
